. instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached, the first response of the united states must be out outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> eliot: president obama fired right back. >> governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. as president one thing you learn is you can't do that. >> eliot: tough words from the president. for more let's go to special assistant to president clinton and previews of georgetown university. pj-- >> george washington university. >> eliot: excuse me, i'll stay out of that. this is not a laughing matter. what do we know about the genesis of this deadly and violent attack in benghazi. >> that's a key question. we know the attack and the reality and the tragedy. we don't yet know whether there were sparks by this film, and if it was a respond takennous spontaneous response taken to the extreme and who was behind it. >> eliot: and you're trying to zero on the genesis where it came were. it could have been a al-qaeda plant, and this could have been a response made in the west we just don't know. >> sure
saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we condemn hurt thosecondemn efforts to offend believers of all religious. later, no one was hurt and protesters eventually disbanded. as that situation in egypt was winding down, the situation in libya was getting worse. so ten hours after the statement was issued in cairo at about 4:00 in the afternoon then attackers in libya entered the american consulate in benghazi and started firing. three americans were trapped inside including ambassador stevens. if this were not enough of a crisis going on, back at home mitt romney decides to weigh in before it's even clear what is going on in libya. so at 10:30 last night romney issues a statement attacking the cairo embassy's statement earlier, when those guys were just trying to diffuse the situation on the ground. romney said in his statement last night, it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our top plow our diplomatic missions but
